Challenges

My Mom will be 88 years old this June, She was fourty when I was born...She is the strongest person I know, she has been through so much. She lost two children six months apart and they were only in their forties. She has battled breast and colon cancer and won! These pictures are of a luncheon I had for her and my three sisters on Mother's Day last year. We lost my Dad a couple months ago and it has been hard for her....I worry about her. I pray she will win this challenge also.

How sweet of you to do this for your mother. I hope this year lifts her spirits and I pray God will see her through. I can only imagine it's got to be hard. Here's wishing her well.

Dear Tattered Nest,
It is because your Mother is so deeply loved that she is able to carry on. It is the memories we carry, of our loved one,that are our treasures. We take them out and tell our stories and once again we laugh. I send you and your Mother comfort.
May you have bird songs and sweet honey,
~Q~

This party looks as if I planned it myself! I love to entertain older ladies. Your mom looks sweet.

What a special way of honoring your Mother and your sisters and your table is lovely. Your Mom sounds like a very strong lady and I'm sure she gets even more strength being surrounded by her children and their love. Hugs - Karen
